About me:
Hello, My name is Rusty! I have had a rough life that has left me feeling a little bit nervous around new environments. Sometimes when the sky booms and water falls out of the clouds, I need my person to give me extra snuggles so I feel safe. Being 11 years young, I've had a lot of time to learn that I really prefer an environment that is calm and inviting. I thought I had found my family, but it was a very busy home and it was not the best fit for me. I was feeling anxious with all of the people coming in and out. So I am back in the loving arms of my foster mom. She is patient and is teaching me how to accept love. I am learning that I do not need to use my mouth when I am nervous. Currently, I am living with children ages 2 and 6 years. They are so sweet to me and have become my good buddies. I enjoy going for walks, but I am not a huge fan of the cold MN weather. I am very much looking forward to finding my forever family who will love me unconditionally and with patience. A warm lap and blanket would be a huge plus too. My golden years have just begun and I have so much love yet to give. 2/22/18 7:25 PM
